How to get a skip bin permit in the Shire of Cardinia
Cardinia Shire Council skip bin hire for homes and businesses
If you live in a suburb located within the Shire of Cardinia, you can book up to 2 free hard waste collections per year. You can book this service any time you want, but you can only get rid of up to 2 cubic metres of waste.
The free council waste service only accepts certain types of waste, too. It won’t accept rubbish such as grass clippings, weeds, or leaves, or building and renovation materials. For more freedom with what (and how much) you can get rid of, you’ll need to book a skip bin through an external waste collection service.
At WM Waste Management Services, we pride ourselves on offering a huge range of bin sizes, and we process most waste through the Knox Transfer Station. From small 2 cubic metre skips up to 23 cubic metre walk-in bins, we have the rubbish removal solution for you.
